Nose and Toes: a poem celebrating the senses of smell and touch

Updated: Sep 16, 2023

What wonderful things we possess as humans: noses and toes being just two of them - both of which can wake your senses like they did when you were a child... you just have to let them.

And never take your nose and toes for granted.

Nose and Toes

When I pull off my socks

and feel the air

tickle my toes

My happiness grows

When I lie with my dog

and feel her hair

prickle my nose

My happiness flows

When I run on the grass

and feel its blades

peep through my toes

My happiness glows

When I race with the wind

and feel its breeze

sweep through my nose

My happiness grows

When I splash in the sea

and feel its waves

nibble my toes

My happiness flows

When I giggle with friends

and feel the joy

jiggle my nose

My happiness glows

Mark Bird

A baby's toes
Let you toes go ...
